I bought Britney’s new CD, Circus, the day it came out. I am not ashamed to admit it, I am a big Britney fan and am rooting for her continued recovery. She’s had a tough year and I am proud of how she is working on improving her life.
Britney’s new CD is what we would expect of Britney. It has both dance music and a few more ballads than her previous albums had. I really like Womanizer, Circus, Out From Under, Unusual You, Blur, My Baby, Mmm Papi, and If You Seek Amy.
Speaking of If You Seek Amy, I read an article somewhere about a mother who bought her young sons this CD. She bought it because they like her. But she became horrified when she heard her sons singing the chorus. Part of the chorus goes like this, “But all of the boys and all of the girls are beggin’ to if you seek Amy”. However if you say it fast enough like Britney does, it sounds like she is saying, “But all of the boys and all of the girls are beggin’ to F.U.C.K. me”.
This is what mother heard her sons say and she got upset. I believed that she said that there should have been a warning label on the CD stating that there are bad words on there. First of all, why would someone buy her young sons a Britney CD? Every parent should know that Britney’s album is not appropriate for any young child. If they were a teenager, then it’s ok I guess, but these were little boys. Second of all, if she read the list of songs before buying it, she should have realized right away that this album is not for her children at all. The titles, Lace and Leather and Mmm Papi should have been a dead give a way that this album was not child appropriate don’t you think?
There is one song on here that is child appropriate though. It’s the song, My Baby. When I first heard this song, I got a little teary. Britney had written it for her sons. And when I heard it, I could just picture myself holding my soon-to-be-born son and singing this to him.
